    Instead of soldering wires could tape tem with electrical tape. And if so is there a risk if one of the wires comes lose?

    when ppl talk about bricked wiis its due to a incorrect region firmware update not through loose wires
    loose wires can cause shorts, it could wipe the eeprom through a short
    it may simply work and not work intermittantly who knows

    yes if i wire comes loose and makes contact with a point on the motherboard or with another wire it could very well cause I short, I suggest you buy yourself a 15 or 20 watt soldering iron and go to it, its a very easy install. you can find a wii disassembly guide via google and the wiikey homepage has the install guide. Im not very good with soldering and I havent fucked anything up yet man, Ive done ps2, xbox, wii, gamecube, just take you time man, but I certainly wouldnt try to do it with just electrical tape man, your're just asking for trouble with that method

    ya I agree thats a concern, but as long as you use a 15 or 20watt iron you should be fine, I was doing it with a 45 watt iron until I melted a point but I simply traced the point to a chip on the board and soldered it there, and it works, just so you know if that were to happen theres a plan b, but like I said as long as you're using a low watt iron you'll be safe
